Misfortune Of Being Ned is a short-lived web series; created by The Annoying Orange creator, Dane Boedigheimer. The series lasted from October 9, 2013 to April 23, 2014. The series involves a rather happy-go-lucky 12-year-old kid named Ned (voiced by Youtuber Steve Zaragoza) as he goes on his adventures and ending in rather painful (sometimes deadly) predicaments.

This show provides examples of:

  • Karma Houdini: Greg often gets away with bullying Ned and rather enjoying his predicaments/deaths.
  • They Killed Kenny Again: He dies in half of the episodes and even when he's merely mutilated, he comes off as unscathed the next time we see him.
  • Yank the Dog's Chain: The episode, Ned Wins, finally has him succeed for once by blowing up "Greg-zilla" and winning Wendy. Unfortunately, this is revealed to be a dream and a teddy bear, which appeared out of nowhere, kills him.
